Gigi

This doll was sent to me by my dear friend Carolyn Scoleri in California. This was actually a gift and she is my very favorite. Her hair is in pristine condition as is the body. She came in a generic wedding set, so I dressed her in a tagged Madame Alexander dress, panties, socks, and pink satin maryjanes.

I bought this doll at a local auction. Her hair is in the original set and she has nicely blushed cheeks. I dressed her in a tagged Madame Alexander dress and a pair of original Hoyer shoes. Just fabulous!

This doll was an unexpected find. I found this wonderful brunette at a doll show in a boxlot of dolls under the sales table. Her wig was cleaned and her face is the much sought after matte finish. She was nude, so I dressed her in a tagged Mary Hoyer dress with socks and pink center snap shoes.

This beautiful doll was purchased on eBay and was advertised as a hard plastic strung doll. When I got her, I put her hair back in the original set and dressed her in tagged clothing which consisted of a pink satin strapless gown, slip, panties, black center snap shoes, and a white tagged rabbit fur coat.

This wonderful doll was purchased on eBay. She had a replaced wig, so I sent her to Wanda Houck in Oklahoma for a makeover. I had an extra Gigi Wig, so she replaced her old wig and restyled the new one. She comes dressed in a vintage bridal gown from the 50's that was purchased in Chicago at the UFDC convention. Now she's just wonderful, looking fabulous in her bridal outfit ready to walk down the aisle.

This wonderful doll was purchased locally. Her wig was a mess, so off she went to Wanda. She came back looking gorgeous with highly blushed cheeks. She comes dressed in a gown made from a Hoyer pattern using vintage fabrics. The outfit was done by Donnie Marsden.

Thanks Donnie!!

I purchased this lovely doll from Nancy Splitstoser in Wisconsin. She is all original in her mint green satin gown with matching slip, panties, bra, socks, and shoes. I added the rabbit fur stole and necklace as an accent. She is fully marked and her hair maintains her original upswept hairdo.

Thanks Nancy!!

The crown of my collection!!
An extremely rare costume created for both the 18" & 14" doll. She was purchased nude from the Mary Hoyer Doll Company, redressed, and sold as a fund raiser for an organization. She's factory fresh and looks like she came right off the shelves of Mary Hoyer's store. Crispy MINT!!!

She comes in her original box too.

The gown on this wonderful brunette doll was purchased from Anne Gecke in Florida when she offered it on eBay. It was made by Mary herself for a man and his wife who lived in Florida. It's a one-of-a-kind design. I paid a fortune for it, but it was well worth it. It's in mint condition, tagged, and signed!!.
